Traynor items from "The History of County
Monaghan" by Shirley; (I don't have this book. This info
was sent to me by Ray Greenan)

There is a mention of the Treanor name on page 154 in reference to the
Ancketill Family in the record office in Dublin, that in 1640, the lands
which since constituted the Ancketill estate, about seventy townlands, were
then in possession of Garret Rooney, Patrick Barnwell, Hugh MacShane, Gill
MacMahon, Shane MacTrenor and various members of the MacKenna tribe and
family; and that in the 19th of Charles II. (1667) 3,381 acres, 3 roods and
13 perches were granted to Matthew Ancketill,Esq.

Tranor (O'Treinfhir) - on page 143.
Trenar ancient chief of Treogh. See Errigal Trough.
There was of course no reference on page 143...

All this is on #1279323. Contents of the County Monaghan Museum.

Note: In "The Monaghan Story", by Livingstone, it mentions that Anketell
whose seat was between Emyvale and Monaghan, got 70 townlands in Errigal
Trouagh, but mostly the lands of McMahon and McKenna. He got these probably
before the Rising of 1641.

In 1692 Sir Robt. Thynne inheirited Donaghmoyne and Killanny, 6-1/2
townlands in Magheross and 1 townland in Inniskeen, plus the east side of
Carrickmacross. Thynne's descendants owned the Bath estate in Farney.

In "The Monaghan Story", the Anketell name is mentioned on page 579.
Ralph Anketell in the reign of King Henry III is the earliest one traced.
The Irish family came from William who was granted 70 townlands around Emyvale
in the 1650s. Oliver died in 1666 and his son Matthew was one time sheriff of
Monaghan and killed in the battle of Drmbanagher.
From "The Four Masters":
Maol Ciar in, mac R¢n in tr‚infhear airthir Ereann f‚indidh foghla for
Ghallaibh, do mharbhadh.
That piece in English was found at the St.McCartan's school Web page.

I think the above is about St. McCartan being the "champion" (treanfhear)
or protector of St. Patrick. He would carry him
across streams on his back, etc.
July 14,1796 Patrick Traynor, a school teacher, is sentenced to death for
initiating Lawrence O'Connor into the "Defenders". See documents concerning
Meath. Archivium Hibernicum, DA900, A72, V.8
Aug. 8,1796 Patrick Traynor, a school teacher, is hung, drawn and quartered
at Trim.

From "The Four Masters";

A.D. 830. The thirteenth year of Conchobhar.
The first plundering of Ard Macha.
Ard Macha was plundered thrice in one month by the foreigners, and it had
never been plundered by strangers before. The plundering of Daimhliag and the
tribe of Cianachta, with all their churches, by the foreigners.
Oilill, son of Colgan, was also taken prisoner by them. The plundering of
Lughmhadh and Mucshnamh, and Ui Meith, and Druim Mic hUa Blae, and of other
churches, by them also. Tuathal, son of Fearadhach, was carried off by the
foreigners, and the shrine of Adamnan from Domhnach Maighen.

Ed; Domhnach Maighen = Donaghmoyne parish, Co. Monaghan
Ard Macha = Armagh

Donaghmoyne or "Domhnach Maghen"
The church of the precincic!
is stated to have been founded by St Patrick,
The term "Domhnach" would suggest that the site
was an early Patrician foundation.
In 832 the Annals of Ulster record that the Vikings
raided Donaghmoyne & took the shrine of Adamnan
- the biographer of Columcile - from the site.
It has been speculated that a relic
found in a ___ grave at St Gemain in France
might be that from Donaghmoyne.
In 1207 the church and lands of Donaghmoyne
were granted by Roger Pepard to the hospital
of St. John the Baptist at Ardee.
The church also had close relations
with the Abbey at Louth.
The present church was constructed in 1827
